Bristol Palin: A (Very) Few Words

Standard

Truly, Bristol Palin doesn’t seem to be worth a whole lot of breath, but I can’t help but share my “Bristol Palin, are you friggin’ kidding me?!” moment.

While waiting in line at the pharmacy this evening, I happened to scan the cover of People magazine. On the cover: Bristol Palin and her baby, and the words [and I’m paraphrasing here]: “I’m convinced girls wouldn’t have sex if they knew the consequences.”

I HAD to flip to the article and scan it quickly just to see how she elaborated on the idea.

Her line of thought went something like this: “If girls knew what could happen when they have sex, they would never ever ever ever do it, believe me.”

What did Bristol Palin think happens, exactly, if a girl has unprotected sex?

And John McCain was ready to let this woman’s mother help run the country?

No matter what your political affiliation, I think we can agree that there was some basic birds ‘n’ bees education missing here that wouldn’t have boded well for the future generations of America.

  1. Hear, hear!

    Given that Bristol has two younger sisters and, presumably, a younger brother, whom she seemed nearly exclusively responsible for during her mom’s big for the White House, her ignorance about what causes pregnancy and what it’s like to have babies in the house seems especially curious.

  2. In fairness I saw her speak along with several others and what she was referring to is the responsibility not the actual pregnancy. If teens only knew what their lives would be like if they made that fateful decision and ended up a parent.
